THE VEHICLE I drive a top of the range Volkswagen Passat Estate. It is fully air-conditioned, offers generous interior space, has luxurious leather seats, great visibility and can safely venture through the pretty little country lanes and tiny backroads that regular tour buses are unable to negotiate.
BAGGAGE Please note that for your greatest comfort, I restrict the number of passengers to 3 adults when delivering Day Tours or 2 adults when travelling or transferring with luggage. The number of bags that can be accommodated is 2 large suitcases and 2 small carry on bags as well as purses and coats.
RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENT Bookings are taken on a first come, first served basis (the courtesy of first refusal being offered in the event that a second enquiry is received). 20% of the full tour price must be paid for at the time of booking to secure my services. The full balance of the tour, plus any additional expenses will be due 60 days prior to the start of the tour. The balance must be paid no later than 60 days before the start date of the tour, failure to do so will result in the booking being cancelled and the deposit paid being forfeited. I accept most credit cards on the secure payment page of my website; alternatively payment may be made either by automatic bank transfer or bank draft.
Once the payment has been charged I will send you an e-mail confirming your reservation by return. I very much regret that due to a few "no-shows" in the past, I have had to implement the above policy, but trust that my cancellation terms are sufficiently flexible and acceptable to you.
Please be assured that Tours of the Realm neither store nor intend to store clients credit or debit card details.
